1
CHURCH PLANTING BASICS
2
Why plant Churches?
3
13 Reasons to Plant a Church
  • Its Biblical
  • Spirit of Prophecy supports it
  • Most effective form of evangelism
  • Churches have life cycles
  • Saves the Denomination
  • Stimulates growth in the Mother church

4
  • Leadership Opportunities
  • Reaches Present Generation
  • Adventist Presence
  • Mobility of society
  • Ethnic Populations
  • Finances
  • Someone planted your church!

Which of these 13 reasons was new to you?
5
Medical Ministry p. 315
  • Upon all who believe God has places the burden
    of raising up churches.

6
  • 3 types of church plant starts
  • Cold
  • Warm
  • Hot
  • What is the difference?

7
COLD PLANT
  • Acts 84-7
  • PHILIP

Was adopted by a mother church--- Acts 815
8
WARM PLANT
  • Acts 131-3
  • PAUL

The most effective church planting occurs when a
sponsor/mother church is actively involved! Each
year the attendance of a new church is 2x higher
than those without the participation of a
sponsoring mother church. Ed Stetzer, Planting
Missional Churches p.79-80
9
Role of Mother Church
  • Encouragement
  • Coaching
  • Financial Assistance
  • Core Team
  • Facilities
  • Accountability
  • Love/Unity
  • Prayer

Why should you never plant without a mother
church or sponsoring church?
10
HOT PLANT?
  • If you are disguising a church split by calling
    it a church plant than you can expect Gods
    judgment and not his blessing!

11

  • Studies Show that if a denomination wishes to
    reach more people the number of new churches it
    begins must equal at least 3 of the
    denominations existing churches.
  • Ed Stetzer, Planting Missional Churches p. 5
  • 6 Churches per year should be your minimum goal.

21
Cast Gods Vision
  • I saw jets of light shining from cities and
    villages, and from high places and low places of
    the earth. Gods word was obeyed, and as a result
    there were memorials for Him in every city and
    village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the
    world Test 7, p. 105

22
Show the benefits
  • Church Age/Salvation Ratio
  • 10 years old 851
  • 4-7 years old 71
  • 3- years old 31
  • Starting a House Church, Larry Kreider and Floyd
    McClung p. 31

23
  • The single most effective evangelism methodology
    under heaven is planting new churches.
  • Peter Wagner, Church Planting for a greater
    Harvest p. 11

24
THE DENTON STORY
25
Answer Objections
  • We first need to build up the church we have
  • Planting will harm the mother church
  • We will loose our loving fellowship
  • We already have too many churches
  • Cant afford it
  • How would you answer these objections?
  • What other objections might arise?

26
Easier to make babies than raise the dead.
27
Nehemiah 218
  • Then I told them of the hand of my God which was
    good upon me as also the king's words that he
    had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up
    and build. So they strengthened their hands for
    this good work.

Luke 612
  • And it came to pass in those days, that he went
    out into a mountain to pray, and continued all
    night in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day,
    he called unto him his disciples and of them he
    chose twelve, whom also he named apostles

32
Matthew 937
  • Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest
    truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few 38
    Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that
    he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
